Today’s obsession is: the pompon. (Just in the unlikely case that guys read my blog and this post: No, it’s not what you may think. Look at the pictures first.)
Apart from the strickliesel, knitting dolly, knitting nancy, or however you used to call them doing pompons was one of the first things I remember being able to do without the help of someone else. When I was a kid. Everything I did had or was made of pompons. Unfortunately, pompons remained the only thing I still could craft today – if I just had the patience. It’s easy. And the result is lovely! I should start crafting some – and if it’s only for the cats. Feisty Feia went ballistic last time I was wearing my pompon shoes.
(By the way: No, the pompons in the first image are not handmade – at least not by myself. They’re part of my clownish pompon shoes by Etro I bought two years ago.)
